COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Dresses and Swords submitted by SurfGrape on June 20, 2016, 12:51pm Five minutes into this movie and I was giggling with delight. Ten minutes more and I was completely won over. This is my new favorite version of P&P. It's the movie I never knew I needed, but now can't live without.

Nice submitted by hollieesper121573 on July 21, 2017, 4:24pm A little ridiculous but I really liked it lots of action which is always a plus with me

great submitted by yenkong on July 27, 2017, 8:26pm I think it's good show. And funny as well.

Not great submitted by zmclaugh on July 25, 2018, 3:05pm Lacking the elements that made the book interesting.

Meh submitted by granumm on August 4, 2018, 1:27pm It's alright but not really exciting.

Ok submitted by lstorc on August 28, 2018, 8:48am This left a lot to be desired. The zombies did add an interesting fact to an otherwise timeless story.

Book is better. submitted by Cihendricks on August 5, 2019, 10:14am The movie is enjoyable. The book was infinitely better.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: I was looking for something really silly submitted by ccrose on August 19, 2019, 11:01pm But truthfully, I couldn’t tell if the actors were delivering their lines in earnest, fully into this premise or if it was all tongue in cheek. Well, there’s no clues. No Monty Python, or Young Frankenstein, with lines with exaggerated seriousness but really goofy words. I think one clue was in a zombie encounter, the five sisters are out there in the meadow, slashing and stabbing, usually multiple times and the sound effects guys must have had fun coming up with the sound sequence: first, watermelon chopping sound but as the stabs keep coming they add a little liquidy slosh. Ew.. point in their favor: most of the actual death stabs are off camera or in darkish light.
It went a little slow for my taste. The five sisters had been schooled in use of knives and short swords and in their long puffy dresses, it seems incongruous that not one got blood on her dress. Oh yes, Mr Darcy, one of the fellows who falls in love with one sister,, was excellent at brooding.. in profile, full face, head hung low, any posture he could demonstrate brooding. Maybe if I watched it again with a friend who laughed a lot, I’ll get it’s comedic intent... A couple of the zombies are pretty convincing. One carries a baby zombie.. Little kids may not laugh at those parts.

Pleasantly Surprised submitted by caburr47 on July 3, 2020, 8:56am I was truly surprised that I liked this film. The added element of physical combat to heighten the drama and stakes actually was played really well.

I would actually recommend reading the book - they are different but certainly complement their medium.

Enjoyable, fun twist submitted by tkuz5 on June 22, 2021, 8:32pm It is silly but enjoyable. Fun to see how they mix P&P and Zombies...hahaha

okay movie submitted by bjkoch on July 8, 2022, 12:42pm not many P&P elements.
